Liz Cheney just launched her reelection bid but did so under a dark cloud.
A new poll has found that she is a whopping 30 points behind her Republican challenger Harriet Hageman.
It seems Republican voters are serious about getting Cheney bumped from office.
As Cheney files for reelection, poll from rival group shows her trailing badly
GOP Rep. Liz Cheney is down 30 points in a new survey of her August primary conducted by the Club for Growth, which is opposing the embattled incumbent.
The poll, which provides perhaps the starkest illustration yet of the political peril Cheney faces this year, shows Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman garnering 56 percent of the vote to Cheney’s 26 percent in the GOP primary. A third Republican got 12 percent support, and just 6 percent are undecided.
Hageman was recruited and endorsed by former President Donald Trump in response to Cheney’s vote to impeach him last year alongside nine other House Republicans.
The race for Wyoming’s lone congressional district is one where the Club for Growth and Trump, who have quickly turned from allies to foils, are aligned, though the Club has not formally endorsed Hageman. The poll, shared first with POLITICO, was conducted this week by WPA Intelligence, a Republican firm, ahead of Friday’s candidate filing deadline.
These numbers are just brutal.
Hageman – 56%
Cheney – 26%
Bouchard – 12%
Undecided – 6%

Don’t worry about Liz. She can always join CNN or MSNBC.
